Senior Secondary Program Registration

The Gordon is a publicly owned Senior Secondary provider, we are committed to delivering programs which respect the principals and practices of Australian democracy. In delivering our programs, we are committed to helping our students understand both their rights and responsibilities to:

  • Elected Government
  • Commonwealth and Victorian laws
  • Equal rights; freedom of religion; freedom of speech and association.

In understanding our rights, it is equally important to understand our responsibilities. We are committed to both demonstrating and teaching the values of openness, tolerance and respect. 

The Gordon has zero tolerance for bullying, discrimination, harassment, intimidation, victimisation and vilification. We will investigate any allegation of misconduct in relation to these values and take appropriate action, regardless of whether that allegation is against a staff member, student or parent.
